ATSU’s College of Graduate Health Studies (ATSU-CGHS) announced its Master of Public Health and Master of Public Health-Dental Emphasis programs received accreditation by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH) on June 23, 2015.
“It is a great honor to have our public health programs accredited by CEPH,” said ATSU-CGHS Dean Don Altman, DDS, DHSc, MPH, MBA, MA. “This specialized accreditation avows the quality of our online master’s in public health programs and our commitment to adequately prepare our students. Graduates are recognized as being knowledgeable and competent to carry out public health functions in local, state, national, and international settings.”
CEPH is an independent agency, recognized by the U.S. Department of Education, which accredits schools of public health and public health programs. It is the only agency recognized to accredit graduate schools of public health and graduate public health programs outside schools of public health.
The programs received the maximum initial accreditation of five years.
